Hello! I like to try to make several Christmas cards each month of the year. This decreases stress for me around the holidays, and I enjoy making each card more if I keep up with it.
I decided to use a paper quilt for the backgrounds of these cards (made with scraps of patterned papers), and it was just a perfect spot to add a little scene form these Snow Balls stamps. I stamped everything out in navy ink, but made each card different.
Thank you for visiting today! Keep on Stamping!
Hello and happy Wednesday!!
Today I'm sharing the card that I made for my step-dad for Father's Day. I just love this fun image! I've also used him to send a thank you card when we've gone to someone's house for a BBQ. Wouldn't he also be cute for an invitation to a picnic or great for a birthday card.
I've been really trying to use supplies that I have and are just sitting there collecting dust. I have TONS of ribbon. I'm not sure why I ever thought I'd need so much but the apron gave me a great excuse to pull some out and use it. I used Washi tape in the corner. Don't worry...I only have a normal amount of that! 😂
I just love the Humorous Seniors

Hello stampers! I have a shabby chic card to share today. I love to make at least one rose card in June, as it is the birth flower. When I got this pretty rose stamp that is part of set Half Sheet 137a
, I knew it would be fantastic for making your own patterned paper.
And it is! It is very forgiving too. I didn’t have any trouble lining it up or anything, I just stamped away in a general pattern using brown ink. I then distressed the entire panel with tea dye distress ink and a sponge applicator. I also splattered some ink lightly to get some more aging to the panel.
Finally, I added color to the roses and leaves with chalks. I really am so happy with this background and can’t wait to try it with other colors!
I layered a sentiment from Inspirational Phrases
set with some fancy die cuts. I put this over some lace that was in my stash and put my very last adhesive pearls underneath. I can’t believe that those are my last pearls, sometimes it seems like you will never use all your embellishments!
I hope you have a wonderful day and keep on stamping!
Hello all! I have a card to share that will be a special Father’s Day card for my grandpa. He loves birds and spends many hours each day attending to his bird feeders. They bring him so much enjoyment.
I stamped this bird in brown and then colored it simply with alcohol markers. I die cut it, then with the die in place, sponged some light blue ink around it. I then stamped the sentiment and die cut it the same way.
The background is made with the Distress Stencil Technique that you can find at this link
. I used Frayed Burlap Distress ink and a feather stencil.
